An Alaskan rescue plane traveling 37 m/s
drops a package of emergency rations from
a height of 149 m to a stranded party of
explorers.
The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s
2
.
Where does the package strike the ground
relative to the point directly below where it
was released?
Answer in units of m
007 (part 2 of 3) 10.0 points
What is the horizontal component of the velocity just before it hits?
Answer in units of m/s
